Publisher's Summary

Being given yet another pointless 'man manual' that told him 50 ways to tie a bow tie in under 30 seconds made James May certain there was a need for another kind of book. This book, in fact. He reckons there are nine vital things that a chap should be able to do.
Not stuff you can download from the Internet, but really important things. You never know when you might need to land an A330 Airbus, or deliver twins. And there may well be a moment when being able to play a bit of classical music on the piano is absolutely crucial to your success with women. So read, learn, and be prepared - you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

Absolutely Ridiculous and Worth a Read!

Where does How to Land an A330 Airbus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's one of my favorite books! Being a fan of "Top Gear" on BBC, I was amused to see that 'Captain Slow' had written a mans guide to things they need to know. If you have ever watched the show you know that cars are often described as completely pointless but you must buy one and here's why. That's is book!! Very amusing , completely useless, and absolutely fabulous!

Truly Vital Skills

Ok, so I am pretty sure I will never use anything learned from this book. So what! I was entertained by every minute of this book and still find James May to be my favorite of the Top Gear hosts. This book is a must for any of his fans.

Captain Slow teaching us all we need to know.

I listened to the chapter on landing the A330 Airbus on an A320 Airbus hoping the planes were similar enough in case my new skills were required.

Only problem with the book - eating your mate (I fast forwarded the last 1/2 of that chapter). Otherwise - good reading!
